This Autumn we are welcoming eclectic women's brand Rabens Saloner to Fenwick Tunbridge Wells.
In the 1968 film The Girl on a Motorcycle, Marianne Faithfull zipped up her leather jumpsuit, leapt on her bike and set off on a voyage of discovery and escape....This season Rabens Saloner takes its own road trip and creates a collection that captures the adventurous and free-spirited power of this iconic woman.
The palette centres around a myriad of wine and berry, featuring bordeaux, claret, plum and mulberry, contrasted with midnight blue, shady green and dark deep mustard. Nude shades and off whites add optimism and freshness, whilst the silhouette reflects the eclecticism with slim tops matched with looser, fuller volumes giving a sense of relaxed ease to the collection.
Prints are always important in the Rabens world and this season they reflect the journey with palm prints and upholstery fabrics taken from motel rooms and roadside diners. Animal prints are also mixed with marble-like tie-dye as clothes are pulled out from luggage and thrown on with creativity and daring.
